IMC01 The Mental Hygiene League
YES! You are certainly reading this right. A brand new catalog has rissen amidst the fireworks that is called Just not Normal.
IMC is short for Intelligent Machinery Compilations! And for those who know the background of how Just not Normal came about they will know it is birthed from NTNS radio. And long before NTNS radio the second edition as we know it today came about there once was NTNS radio before. From late 2004 till early 2007 NTNS was around already and back in those days it was hosted by John Ingram. Alongside he ran a netlabel called Intelligent Machinery. As I know all to well myself that I could never fully give up on music and the world around it John returns today in the realm of releases.
Starting with this very special compilation you will find here special projects initiated by the master himself and now nested within the compounds of Just not Normal. This is only the beginning!!!!
It was in 1975 that a group of high school friends started calling themselves the Mental Hygiene League. The name was chosen to represent the gathering together and sharing of their artistic musings and wistful discoveries. 35 years later, this small group of free-thinkers has expanded into a cultural and artistic phenomenon that has bridged generational gaps. Collected here for the first time is an offering of sonic meanderings from an assortment of people who are of the Mental Hygiene League: some tracks are solo performances and others are live group ensembles, but all tracks are truly Hygienic.
